Description: Phone is 618-943-3394. Locally owned and operated Italian deli that's been in business for about 100 years. They don't advertise much and seem to rely mainly on local knowledge. Great Italian beef and other sandwiches. Pretty good cannolis.

I haven't eaten at Louie's in over 20 years. It is just as good as it was then and even as good 35 years ago. If you haven't eaten here you don't know what a real Italian sausage, brat, or salameat is.

Louie's was a small grocery store for many years. In recent years they have become more of a specialty store. They serve a great lunch! They still have an old fashion meat, cheese, deli counter, with great fresh products. The best of Louie's P&R is their Italian sausage, Brats, Jalapeno Italian sausage and my favorite,the Italian salameat sausages! Great on... More

This is one if our local favorites. We stopped in for lunch and as always, we're NOT disappointed. Their Italian beef as always was hot, juicy, and delicious. The servings are HUGE so plan appropriately and save room for a cannoli.

After hearing about this local market/deli, we decided to give it a try on a Saturday for lunch. It was a pleasant surprise. It is a clean little spot to have lunch. In the front of the market are tables for dining, the middle section holds the checkout and tiny market area and at the back is the deli counter.... More

This is a butcher shop, folks. And the restaurant is far enough away from it to not gross you out. But it's an old butcher's shop. Nothing fancy about it. The sandwiches they make are good, but honestly, I always watch carefully to make sure the ladies making the sandwich wear new (unsoiled) gloves to make it. They do. Friendly... More

Louie's takes you on a trip through time when you could have a conversation with the person behind the counter and get to know what is the best choice that day. They offer imported Italian meats and cheeses that you simply cannot find anywhere else in the area. And.....Cannolli!!!
